William (Willie) Eric's Story
William (Willie) Eric Stover-Laudermilt was born the 4th of July, 1989 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He spent 27 years making his family laugh until he was taken from us and began his new adventure on October 11th, 2016 in Muncie, Indiana.
William was murdered in his home while protecting his mom during a break-in. William attended Bryant Elementary, Central Junior High, and Moore High School in Moore, Oklahoma. He was passionate about music, skateboarding, and keeping his family safe. He was truly an old soul that appreciated the small and simple things in life. He never raised his voice to anybody - finding quietude where most would find anger was one of his many talents. In a way, his handsome smile and long hair symbolized the peacefulness and 'hippie' mentality he held inside.
As he wished, his family held a private celebration of his life in place of a funeral.
William is survived by his mom, Shannon; sister; Whitney Stover; step-dad, Garry; grandparents, Essie and Rick; uncle, Lou (Bubba); aunt, Lynn; aunt, Pam; cousins, Brandon, Morgan, Nic, Scotty, Tara, Lindsey, Sarah, Brooklynn, and Gigi. No words will ever describe the pain and injustice of such a peaceful person being taken so tragically from the people who loved him.
